Increased price in unimix causes worry in Makindu

Greetings, and thank you for being a constant support to the kids who truly rely on our services.

Thankfully we have so many kids that will be going to college and vocational school this fall, however, to continue their studies with full attention and ease, they must have a well balanced diet. One of the food options we offer at the Centre is a very nutrient dense food called unimix which has recently increased in price. To continue giving the kids and their families these meals we will need major donations. We will not cut portions or turn anyone away, but we do need to be able to provide full meals to all who are in need. Within the hundreds of children and guardians we serve, we currently serve 46 kids and 66 guardians with HIV who are in extra need of this highly nutrient rich food. The need for them to have this nutrition for their immune system is incredibly important so that their antiretrovirals can work properly and efficiently.Thank you so much for your continued support of Makindu Children's Program. Through our Food Baskets we have been able to help so many who wouldn't have had the chance before. Asante.
